Half-Life 2 Substance installer v2.1
Half-Life 2 Substance full version




This mod harks back to a bygone age, when innovation with first person shooters was king.
Games like Thief, Requiem or Shogo would explore new approaches to the shooter genre.
Substance sought to merge the different playstyles into a precursor to the Crysis suit.

Each of the HEV Suit Modes comes with its own weapons and abilities, like energy shields or cloaking.
Just like multiplayer classes, which can be switched on the fly and share one gigantic inventory.

Newly available in this version, is the VR Missions map pack: as Substance used to be limited to the
vanilla and remastered campaigns, it can now be played in over a hundred Half-Life 2 classic maps
such as Strider Mountain, The Citizen, Rock 24, Riot Act and Mistake of Pythagoras!

VR Missions Final


To install the mod, place the Half-Life 2 Substance installer in Sourcemods and run it with admin rights.
Note: Half-Life 2 and Source SDK 2006 must be installed, and run at least once before installing.

I'm having issues with the mouse. It'll randomly snap to other locations or even off target a bit. It makes target tracking difficult to impossible.

Now it no longer works with its Coastline to Atmosphere counterpart (and I REALLY like that mod and combining it with Substance was REALLY fun, seriously...! <3 And I had a LOT of fun back in 2016 when my PC was near 100%, unlike now... TT ), is there a fix for it?

Hey, I've been having a problem installing the mod. The installer keeps saying "the code execution cannot proceed because vstdlib.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix the problem.", along with tier0.dll. I've reinstalled both HL2 and SDK 2006 multiple times, and the files are there but it's not detecting it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

You need to run the executable (with admin rights) outside of Steam.

In short no, long answer is only with extremely early versions that are hard to find and lack most features.

Back in the golden days of hl2 modding, this was something I played multiple times, and looking back at it, I sincerely wish I could go back for more :( The new additions to the hl2 campaign struck me with surprise and awe and the dozens of new weapons made the action tight and refreshing, with new additional monsters and player abilities to decimate them with. It's a shame this only partially works with mod fixes following the may 2010 update. Perhaps someone with some free time on their hands…
